Far Niente 2010 Dolce Late Harvest Napa Valley

Far Niente 2010 Dolce Late Harvest
The 2010 Dolce offers predominant aromas of butterscotch and dried apricots enriched with subtle notes of nutmeg and caramel. Flavors of stone fruit, mostly apricot and peach, mingle with honeysuckle and the caramel character promised by the aroma. This wine’s sweetness is in balance with a mouthwatering acidity and its silky texture is present from the coating entry to its smooth and lengthy finish. This wine is concentrated with fruit flavors but its youthful expression is expected to develop inviting bakery aromas over time—warm brioche and crème brûlée descriptors are becoming evident already.

Darice Spinelli, winemaker

Darice Spinelli joined Nickel & Nickel as winemaker in 1998 with the ambition to produce superior single-vineyard wines. After a decade focused on shaping the winery's single-vineyard bottlings, Spinelli added the responsibilities of winery president to her duties.

Biology graduate of the University of California at Santa Barbara, Spinelli began her career in the wine industry at Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyard. In 1990, she joined Franciscan Vineyards, and with her first vintage as winemaker, attracted great acclaim from the wine industry’s toughest critics. Her tenure with Franciscan and eventual promotion to production winemaker afforded Spinelli the opportunity to produce wines from many growing areas, including the mountainous region of Mount Veeder; the flat, warm Cabernet country in Oakville; Rutherford, with its famed "Rutherford Dust" character; and regions further south to the coastal climes in Monterey. She even produced wines for Franciscan’s venture in Chile.
